The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with some Australian Newspapers released this NCLT coin as part of a 15 coin set in October/November 2018. The first coin came with a large folding album and the coins were issued in coincards. The series is called "Anzac Spirit - Values that Defined our Nation".
To get a coin you had to obtain a paper token from the newspaper and redeem it at a cost of $3.00. Different tokens were published each day for just over 2 weeks (hence 15 coins).
Eleven of the 15 coins released in the series are 20 cent coins and four of them are 50 cent coins. They were issued in a collector coin card. This 20 Cent coin is not meant for circulation however it is legal tender.
This particular coin refers to the Confident Value. Trooper William "Billy" Sing of the 5th light Horse Regiment was a Chinese-Australian who served in the Australian Imperial Force during WW1. A skilled and experienced rifleman, he became the leading Australian sniper during the Gallipoli campaign. Sing was nicknamed "The assassin" and "The murderer" for his deadly skill. Sing became so proficient at his trade, the Ottomans reputedly brought in their own crack shot, "Abdul the Terrible", to track him down. Yet Sing survived both Gallipoli and the Western Front, earning the Distinguished Conduct Medal and returning home to Queensland.
